KIEV, February 19, 9:16 /ITAR-TASS/. ass) - Firemen succeeded to save 41 people from a burning house of trade unions on Independence Square in central Kiev, Ukraine’s capital, on Wednesday. Meanwhile, the country’s state service of emergency situations reported that seven people were taken to hospital.
Strong fires have spread not only on the house of trade unions, but also a neighbouring trading centre Globus. While firemen try to put out the fire, oppositionists are fuelling up the bonfires, which, in their view, should serve as a shield from law enforcers. Protesters are constantly putting more fuel in the bonfires, not only car tyres, but also doors, window frames, wooden boxes, as it is seen in the TV footage.
So, the fire has already spread on the Tchaikovsky National Musical Academy building also situated on the square.
